Deborah Turbeville: The Fashion Pictures by Franca Sozzani,Deborah Turbeville



A portfolio of some very stylized photographs she did for Saks Fifth Avenue was her first big breakthrough into the fashion photography world. Subsequently, her work first appeared in Vogue in the 1970s. Since then she has been a dominant figure in contemporary photography. Turbeville has authored many books, including Unseen Versailles, Wallflower, Studio St. Petersburg, Past Imperfect 1978-1997, and Casa No Name.

Nailing it in the book’s foreword, Franca Sozzani says, ‘Her pictures are not about fashion, even though she respects fashion. Dazed Digital: What motivated a book on your fashion photography after all these years?

From internationally acclaimed photographer Deborah Turbeville comes the first book on her highly influential visionary avant-garde fashion photography. Celebrated for her poetic grace and cinematic vision, Deborah Turbeville has produced fashion tableaux that draw the viewer into her otherworldly environments. A romantic and modernist, Turbeville bridges the boundaries between commercial fashion and fine arts photography. In this remarkable presentation, Turbeville reveals her highly individualistic point of view of fashion photography and the stories behind her photographs.

From internationally acclaimed photographer Deborah Turbeville comes the first book on her highly influential visionary avant-garde fashion photography. Deborah Turbeville has been described as the anti-Helmut Newton. For this latest monograph, Rizzoli have pulled together the fashion pictures, which include famous stories for Vogue such as Bathhouse from 1975, Women in the Woods from 1978 and Women in Furs from 1984. However the treasures of this collection are the lesser-known works; pages from magazine Maquillage, hitherto unpublished work for Chanel, portraits of Italian royalty, the Venice Carnival, designer Selina Blow and Russian ballerinas.

Vogue Italia's Franca Sozzani, who worked with Deborah Turbeville for more than 30 years, recalls an uncompromising photographer. See the Observer's obituaries of 2013 in full here. People in the fashion world like more commercial photographers and she never cared to become commercial. Plus, she had to like what she was doing for the passion to be there. And a few days before she died, we agreed to do a book together around her pictures of the great aristocratic Italian families. It is a beautiful and sad thing to be doing now that she is not here, but I am very happy and proud to be doing it. For me, she is among the greatest photographers.

Deborah Turbeville follows her own idiosyncratic path. Her images are haunting, scratched, dusty. Turbeville follows her own dreams with her photography, and she creates beauty and timeless mysteries, and lighting with great lucidity and power. Colors are powdered down, and the black and white fashion shoots seem almost submerged.

Acclaimed photographer Deborah Turbeville is one of the rare talents who has managed to bridge the world of fine art and commercial fashion photography seamlessly - her images are instantly identifiable, often moody and quietly poetic shots that evoke a certain amount of melancholy and, intriguingly, warmth, at the same time.

From internationally acclaimed photographer Deborah Turbeville comes the first book on her highly influential visionary avant-garde fashion photography. Celebrated for her poetic grace and cinematic vision, Deborah Turbeville has produced fashion tableaux that draw the viewer into her otherworldly environments. A romantic and modernist, Turbeville bridges the boundaries between commercial fashion and fine arts photography. In this remarkable presentation, Turbeville reveals her highly individualistic point of view of fashion photography and the stories behind her photographs.  This first retrospective presentation of Turbeville's fashion photography was selected by the artist herself. In addition, she has designed the evocative layouts to create yet another masterwork. The presentation includes Turbeville's most famous photographs, among them the controversial Bathhouse series of 1975 for American Vogue with disturbingly isolated figures and her Woman in the Woods series of 1977 for Italian Vogue showing psychologically charged emotions, along with her numerous photography campaigns for labels like Sonia Rykiel, Valentino, Yamamonto, Ungaro, and Commes des Garçons, as well as commissions for Chanel and work that has never been seen before. Her most current project for Casa Vogue--Italian nobility dressed in special couture outfits--evokes Turbeville's vision of everlasting beauty.

I am a big fan of Deborah Turbeville's work and this book was fabulous. I love the feel/mood of the images and I am happy to have this book as part of my photography library. I also have her "Past Imperfect" book too. I think this one is better, though I love them both. Found the book to be very inspirational. Lots of ideas for shooting I would like to do.

Beautifully done book. I recommend.

Beautiful volume of fashion pictures by a photographer who bore (she died in late 2013) a unique vision to the field.

Wonderfully inspiring and provoking. What a visual stimulus! Sit down with a master story teller. Almost like reading a sketchbook of a wonderful painter.

I remember the "wow" of seeing the bath house pictures the first time in Vogue. They're still affective.
